Whether you head to water's edge for a dip or find a forested trail to hike through, a vacation in Khajuraho offers perfect getaways and activities to indulge in. From easing those tension knots in your shoulders to spiritual elevation, some of the things that you can do in Khajuraho are:


  • Massage

Well not so much an activity in the technical sense, but you could indulge yourself in an ayurvedic massage that many of the hotels offer. You can get the real deal at Ayur Arogyam, a center for ayurvedic and rejuvenation therapies, started by Narayanankutty Nambiar, from Kottakkal, Kerala.

A typical one hour body massage session can cost anywhere between INR 1000 - 2000. Pick-up and drop services from your hotel of stay to the center are also provided free of charge.

  • Yoga

Now that you have travelled this far to walk right into exotic medieval art and architecture, physically and mentally, why not round off your exploration of this town's history, spiritually as well. Home to a number of Yoga ashrams, engaging in different yogic asanas surrounded by hills and nature, will bring a different meaning to your quest for inner harmony and balance. These centers also offer meditation retreats with accommodation facilities that you can enroll in. Yoga sessions are also conducted by many of the hotels, so you could check with the hotel you are staying at or head over to Yogi Sudershan Dwiveda, who conducts sessions at his home.

Timings: 6am onwards. Instead of fees, donations to the ashram can be made.

  • Swimming


Want to cool and wash off the heat and dust of the town? Feel like stretching your muscles without sweating buckets? Well, swimming is your answer. You could take a swim in the pool of the hotel you are staying at, provided it has one, or head over to use the pools at Radisson Jass hotel (INR 300)and hotel Taj Chandela (INR 500).


  • Jungle Safari

Suddenly find yourself faced with a vacation tempo too slow for your liking and want to charge it up with some excitement? Then a jungle safari at Panna National Park could be your solution. With its deep ravines, cascading waterfalls and towering teak forests, it is situated at a distance of 40 kilometers from Khajuraho on the east bank of the Ken river. Take an early morning guided tour on a jeep and you may just come across nilgai, sambar, chital, wild boar and Indian crocodile and if you are lucky who knows even tigers, leopards, hyenas or the sloth bears.

Do keep in mind that the park remains closed during monsoons, open from November to June.


With so many options to indulge yourself in, a trip to Khajuraho is bound to be a fun-filled one and spring life right back into you.
